What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

The Muppet Doo-Doo Post

Last weekend Jen and I got to meet Karen Prell and Brian Henson, and it was beyond amazing. I say this both to brag (WE MET KAREN PRELL AND BRIAN HENSON YOU GUYS) and to explain why I have Muppets on the brain.

(Btw, "Muppets On The Brain" is the name of my Lady Gaga cover band.)

So.
Please to enjoy this Muppet-themed sing-along.

Ahem.
Hem. Hem.

Do The Floppy Flips

Ahh, flip-flops. The quintessential, mandatory summer footwear of summer-dwelling people who also have feet.

Look closely. You're about to forget what these look like.

 

Here in Florida, you'd be hard pressed to find a person NOT wearing flip-flops right now. That's because we're actually required to have a minimum of 6 pairs each, along with an annual pass to Disney World, a full keg of OJ, and a sickly pale non-tan that helps us differentiate each other from the tourists.

But, I digress.

Naturally, bakers are RIGHT ON TRACK with the floppy flip sole train:

By offering us spotted pickles.

(CHOOCHOO, MOFOS)

 

And lei-wearing bam-hammers.

 

And... uh... [reaching desperately] Pikachu smears?

 

And...

OH COME ON

 

[evil, deadpan glare]

 

Wrecky minions, it is with only the greatest horrified amusement that I announce the flip-flop CCC (patooie!) has officially warped beyond all recognition. I give you...

The Tadpole Ghosts of Flops Past.

Rest in pieces, wrecky flops. Rest in pieces.

 

Thanks to Alexis H., Kris K., Rebecca K., Danielle H., Tina, & Zakiya P. for toeing the line.
